    The staff are super friendly, the space sets you up to meet people, the pool is great, the rooftop hammocks are relaxing, the fridge has beer, and the beds have curtains. The showers are just cold water and the breakfast was always pancakes, fruit, yogurt, and granola when I was there. Overall, great experience. I miss the people I met there already.

    Definitely stay here if your looking for a social space. Everyone who was working and staying there were super friendly, chill and there’s always someone down for an adventure. Free breakfast (pancakes, fruit, granola) is a great perk but they need to get a new coffee maker ;) Awesome location for that part of town. I stayed during my week of surf / Spanish with Oasis and am happy I booked here vs the surf school accommodation as i was looking for a social scene.
